The 1916 Kentucky Wildcats football team represented the Kentucky Wildcats of the University of Kentucky during the 1916 college football season. Stoll Field was dedicated for the game with rival Vanderbilt, the season's only loss. Vanderbilt's quarterback was third-team All-American Irby Curry. Vanderbilt coach Dan McGugin stated "If you would give me Doc Rodes, I would say he was a greater player than Curry." The season closed with an upset tie of conference champion and rival Tennessee; an account of which reads "Rodes and McIlvain, Kentucky's quarterback and fullback, played a magnificent game and had they received the proper support from their team, would have piled up a large score against Tennessee."
